Br'er Rabbit

[Politics | Link | Print]

The Weekly Standard has been playing Br'er Rabbit with the Democrats, publishing several hand-wringing articles worrying over threat posed by Howard Dean to the Bush reelection. "Please, Oh, Please, NOT Howard DEAN! ANYBODY, anybody but Howard DEAN!"

The entrance of Wesley Clark into the mix changes the dynamics of the race. Bush won't be able to coast on national security and defense issues the way he could with Dean and most of the other Democratic candidates. But the last general to run for President didn't make the transition to politician very effectively. Alexander Haig was way too intense, and made everybody watching him nervous.
